I am trying to get a head start on some Christmas gifts and also play with my crafting toys. Playing with my toys being as important as the gifts...LOL. I love the look of the new Word Collage Plaques you see all over and the Vinyl wall decor which was one of the reasons I bought my Cricut Expression in the first place. Here is what I made yesterday:
The cartridge shows this as a 5.5 inch phrase but I made it 9 inches long. It is made from the adhesive backed vinyl. I didn't want to mount it onto a plain colored background or placque so went to my LSS and they had this wonderful piece of CS I thought would be awesome for my plaque. I had mounted the ds onto a piece of 4X9 cardboard which I save for this very purpose. I then transferred the vinyl phrase to the cs using the transfer paper and carefully peeled it off and walla my awesome Vino project for my SIL who has a wine themed kitchen.
I had some corkboard I am mounting this piece onto, but I just got it cut tonight. I will then mount that onto a piece of balsa wood for stability and figure out the hanging technique, When I get it all done I will show you the completed project. Should only take another day or two :)
Let me know what you think. Have a great day!!!
